Early Rain Covenant Church Pastor and Deacon Continue to Face Significant Legal Challenges
(China Aid) — Two leaders of Early Rain Covenant Church (ERCC) continue to face numerous legal challenges as they grapple with authorities.
According to new information, the defense lawyer for Pastor Wang Yi was barred from meeting with his client several weeks ago.
More recently, officials said Deacon Tan Defu hired two lawyers in his detention center. Lawyers hired by the deacon’s family were told their contracts were terminated.
Tan’s wife later said she would travel to meet with officials to learn more about the newly-hired lawyers and get a better understanding of the case against him. Officials have now added an additional charge of “illegal business operation” to Tan’s case, according to new information.
